Noble Cut Distillery Press Release

Noble Cut Distillery Opens New Location at Put-in-Bay

Columbus-based distillery’s second location finds home near famed Benson Ford Shiphouse, inspiration for one of its small-batch offerings.

Columbus, OH – Noble Cut Distillery announced today the opening of a new location on Put-in-Bay, near the famed Benson Ford Shiphouse. Located in the Columbus suburb of Gahanna, Noble Cut Distillery has been producing award-winning craft spirits with an emphasis on natural flavors and unique offerings since 2015. Noble Cut Distillery Put-in-Bay marks the first expansion for the brand.

This new location on Put-in-Bay is special to us for a couple of reasons,” says Shawn O’Reilly, CEO of Noble Cut Distillery. “Not only is it the residential home of one of our owners, but we have a strong customer base on the northern shore of Ohio and want to bring our products closer to our fans.”

The location will feature enhanced tastings and the opportunity to learn the background and history of the spirits. Visitors will have the option to purchase Noble Cut’s flavored whiskeys, Cellos, and vodkas, as well as specially made, small-batch Shiphouse Vodka.

Noble Cut Distillery has been producing Shiphouse Vodka since 2022 in conjunction with the owner of the actual Benson Ford Shiphouse, Bryan Kasper of Sandusky. The unique offering comes in a bottle shaped like the Shiphouse itself, and the product is known for being extremely clean and neutral. Shiphouse Vodka is distilled six times from 100% American-grown grain, then filtered 10 times through activated charcoal filters. Due to the extra time taken in filtering, batches are only produced 200-300 gallons at a time. In April 2023, the spirit was awarded Double Gold at the famed San Francisco International Spirits Competition.

Double Gold is awarded to a spirit that received a gold rating from every judge on the panel and is a testament to the quality put into every bottle,” notes Tony Guilfoy, co-owner and head distiller of Noble Cut Distillery. “We’re so proud of this product and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to open a new location just a few miles away from its inspiration.”

In addition to purchasing Shiphouse Vodka bottles on-site at the distillery, Put-in-Bay residents and visitors can find it on cocktail menus throughout the island. The Noble Cut Cocktail Passport will highlight featured locations for consumers to enjoy a cocktail and get a stamp, then once the passport is filled, it can be redeemed for a prize at the distillery.

While Shiphouse Vodka will continue to be produced in Columbus, Noble Cut Distillery Put-in-Bay will distill small-batch offerings annually to be released on location.


Noble Cut Distillery Put-in-Bay, located at 280 Delaware Ave., is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day.
